High Holidays at Nevei Kodesh:

You Are Welcome Here!

The Days of Awe: Rosh HaShana (New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of At-One-Ment)

Join us at the beautiful Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center, located at the junction of Folsom and Edgewood, to experience our amazing Jewish Renewal-style High Holy Day services. Unity’s space boasts a 500-person air-conditioned Sanctuary with a glassed in "cry room," an outdoor creek-side worship space and sacred labyrinth, and numerous rooms for meditation, chanting, yoga and teen and children's programming.

Over the course of the Days of Awe, participants pray, sing, drum, move their bodies and open their hearts as they set their deepest intentions for the year to come. Supported by our spectacular musical ensemble, worshippers find themselves going higher and higher, deeper and deeper - held in the bosom of a loving, accepting community.  All liturgy is provided in easy to follow format, with English phonetics and translations. 

Rosh HaShana

5779: September 9-10, 2018

Erev Rosh HaShana (Rosh HaShana Eve) and first day Rosh HaShanah morning services, we have a powerful range of prayer offerings. In addition to liturgy and musical leadership, services feature movement meditation, zhikr and drum circles, time for outdoor prayer, a full Torah service, shofar-blowing like you've never experienced before, and kiddush with apples, honey and honey-cake. Children's and teen's programming is available. 

All services will be at Unity of Boulder Spiritual Center, 2855 Folsom St., except Second Day Rosh HaShanah Retreat.  


Second Day of

Rosh HaShana:

A Contemplative Retreat in the Mountains

5779: September 11, 2018,

9:30 am - 1 pm

On the second day of Rosh HaShana, we head up into the mountains to the spectacular Shoshoni retreat center.  There we spend the morning in deep kirtan-style prayer and devotional song, offering our prayers for personal and collective healing. We conclude our service with shofar-blowing, kiddush and tashlich (the release of old karma) at the lake. Following all this, participants can choose to share in a delicious vegetarian meal provided by the Shoshoni center. Shoshoni's grounds host many miles of trails through exquisite fall scenery, so many participants choose to augment their worship experience with a gorgeous afternoon hike. Outdoor Programming for older children and teens is available, as well as childcare for those under 5.

Please note that this is a separate event, not included in general membership or High Holy Day Guest passes.

Erev Yom Kippur (Kol Nidre / Yom Kippur Eve) and Yom Kippur morning services, we offer multiple modalities for prayer and inner connection, including: traditional music and liturgy, movement meditation, outdoor worship, Torah service, and Yizkor (memorial service). After a two-hour break, we offer afternoon activities including Yoga Nidra guided meditation, chanting, and writing & reflection exercises; and a powerful, potent Neilah (end of YK) service where the entire community gathers on the bimah for an intensified, intimate prayer experience. The conclusion of Yom Kippur is followed by a joyous communal break-fast meal (cost included in ticket price.) Childcare, children's and teen's programming are available. It is customary (though not required) to wear white during the Yom Kippur holiday.
